No. One is not required to accept a summons and complaint, notice of claim, subpoena for personal appearance, or other court papers on behalf of ASU or someone else who works at ASU. Furthermore, one is not required to provide any additional information about the individuals being served.
However, if any of these documents are received in the mail, or if one inadvertently accepts such documents from a process server, that person or department should contact OGC immediately. Delays in responding to such documents could have severe legal consequences for individuals and/or the university.

The appropriate custodian of records should accept service of the subpoena duces tecum and consult with the Office of General Counsel as necessary.
